News and Review: Disneyland Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge

In case we haven’t already mentioned it: Happy 40th Anniversary to Disneyland’s Space Mountain! But what to get for the mountain who’s got everything? How about a groovy, above-the-action, nighttime lounge for Disneyland guests?

What? That sounds like a gift for us? Good — because it is! May 26th marked the first ever Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge Experience, a super-cool celebration of the out-of-this-world mountain (and land!) that has become a Disney icon!

News and Review: New Matterhorn Macaroon Donut at Disneyland!

Just when you thought the Matterhorn Macaroon couldn’t get any cooler (Get it? There’s faux snow on top!), it did. Because donut.

And thanks to our Disneyland go-to gal Heather Sievers (aka @DiningInDisney), we’ve got the scoop on this massive treat. The Matterhorn Macaroon Donut is available at the coffee cart in the hub near the entrance to Fantasy Faire. So it’s super convenient to grab along with your morning java (plus they have a bevy of yummy donuts all the time).

But how, you may ask, did the kooky sweet-treat-designers craft a Matterhorn Macaroon Donut?
